  • incorrect numbers in variable assignments

    I am trying to create a fairly simple math equation to create a "gaged" position in a measured cone

    The problem I am having is PCDMIS is not computing correctly
    If I put in a variable
    ASSIGN V1 = SIN(30)
    and I put the cursor over it...it tells me the value SIN(30)= -0.988
    now, according to my Casio calculator it should be 0.5
    I have also tried COS and TAN, both giving false solutions

    so basically my equation is not working and I am baffled

    I have tried this in both 3.7mr3 and 4.1RC
    This was a simple assignment in order to test what is going on with what I am really trying to do.

    Is there something I am doing wrong?

    thanks

    never mind

    PCDIMS is using Radians

    so am making conversions for my numbers now

        I use this a lot. I wanna say that J or Craiger gave me the formula.

        RAD2DEG(ATAN(feat.vector/feature.vector))
        Xcel & MicroVal Pfx & Global 37mr4 thru 2012mr1sp3
        Contura Calypso 5.4

        Lord, keep Your arm around my shoulder and Your hand over my mouth. Amen.

            Are you aware that a gage diameter and/or gage distance can be constructed within the constructed feature menu?

              Gage diameter can be but not a gage sphere
